Video: Epoxying Mid-ship to Aft

Finally I worked up the courage to glue these two big pieces together.

Lots of epoxy dripping on my neck and shoulders, so I am glad that I am keeping this type of glue-up to a minimum.

20 clamps got me close to what I needed. 48 hour cure time and we will release the clamps and see where we are at. Looks like there is a lot of excellent face to face glue surface here, so I expect it to be super strong.

After the inner and outer hull are put on, these frame elements will be tied together in a very very substantial way. So… if it’s strong now, it will be crazy strong later.
